    Membership Mania has been rained out.  With a constant mist and heavy clouds, the courts are currently unplayable and will probably get worse.  Regretfully, we are postponing this event until next Saturday March 21.

    Thank you to Cynthia, Dennis, Kathy, Monique, Erwin, Michael, and Irene for volunteering to bring food, coffee, and supplies, and to man the Membership Table.  Irene will be out of town next week so additional volunteers are needed.  Please email me if you can help.

    We do also have a Team Tennis Tournament scheduled for March 21 which will continue to be held.  We will either reserve one court for Membership Mania players or give visitors a one-set slot on a team.  If you want to play more tennis, please make sure you sign up for the Tournament.

    Sign up for the Evening Social too!  We need to know how many are coming to plan drinks and food assignments, plus only registrants get email updates and reminders regarding the social.  (This may turn into a lunch social at a local restaurant if no one steps up to host.)

    Don't forget to renew your RSTC membership before you sign up for the Tournament/Social.  If you pay on-line, the Tournament and Social registration forms will reflect member-only prices immediately.  If you are paying by check and plan to register for the tournament/social once your account is activated, send me an email so we know to expect you.

    Thank you and hope to see you next week!  --Karen

    Step-by-Step Instructions:

    To apply for RSTC membership, click on "Member Application" on the menu bar or click on the following link: Membership Application.pdf and print the application.  Note: For on-line registration, each playing spouse must register separately.  The paper form allows you to register on one form, and we will create separate accounts for you once we receive your application.

    Step 1: Choose your membership level.  At the "tournament" level, there is no additional fee to play in the tournaments.  At the "general" level, there is a $10 fee per tournament.

    Step 2: Fill in your contact information.

    Step 3: If you have a non-playing partner who accompanies you to RSTC social events, you should enter his/her name in the appropriate field and click on the checkbox to register him/her for a social membership.  On the paper form, you should fill out the Member 2 information for him/her and select the $25 Social Membership.  The total cost due is the total of both memberships.

    Step 4: Fill in the volunteer fields (these are on the back of the paper form).  RSTC is an all-volunteer club and we need everyone to volunteer to help run the events!

    Step 5: You can pay on-line via credit card (a small transaction fee is included in the prices listed on-line) or mail in your check.  Once your payment is received, your account will be activated and you will be able to register for Tournaments and Socials at member prices.

    To sign up for Tournaments and Socials, log in so you get member-only prices and your contact information is filled in automatically.  The username/password fields are on the lower left hand side below the menu bar.  Then click on "Tournaments and Events" on the menu bar.

    Step 1: Enter your email address.  If you are not logged in and you are a registered member, you will be reminded to log in.

    Step 2: Choose your registration level.  The registration levels available depends upon your membership level.

    Step 3: Fill in your contact information.

    Step 4: Fill in the volunteer fields for this event.  These are all areas in which we need folks to step up.  Since you are planning on attending the event, please consider how you can help out.

    Step 5: You can pay on-line via credit card (a small transaction fee is included in the prices listed on-line) or mail in your check.  If you are mailing in your check, please don't wait until the last minute!  Once your payment is received, you will be registered for the event.

    I hope you are energized and ready for a new tennis season.  I am very excited to let you know of the many things your Board of Directors has been busy with.

     

    First of all, MEMBERSHIP MANIA.  It will be great fun to see you, enjoy some coffee and breakfast together, and hit some balls.  Fingers and toes crossed for sunny weather!  Registration is not required but is appreciated in order to get a head count. Register for this free event on-line.

     

    Fill out your MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION.  Once we receive your payment, we’ll start sending you the NEW MEMBER PACKET (WELCOME AND INTRODUCTION and EVENT CALENDAR is available now.  PRINTABLE MEMBER DIRECTORY will be coming in April.)

     

    NOTE the new section on VOLUNTEERING.  FILL IT OUT.  Be as generous as you can in offering to help.  We will spread out the work amongst all people that volunteer.  If you play more than twice a year, if you come to the socials, if you go to Pajaro -- you need to volunteer!

     

    NEW this year – SOCIAL MEMBERSHIPS are available for your non-playing spouse/partner (or your non-playing self if you are injured.)  We are asking that everyone who attends more than one or two of our socials to buy at least a Social Membership.  Club dues pays for the drinks, wine, cups, plates, napkins, etc. for all socials.

     

    The MARCH TOURNAMENT will be March 21 and the format is Team Tennis.  We NEED VOLUNTEERS for all positions for this tournament as the Board is busy preparing for Membership Mania.  You can register and volunteer for this event on-line.

     

    I’m very pleased to announce the NEW REDWOOD SHORES TENNIS CLUB WEBSITE.  If you any questions or problems, just let me know.  Here’s a brief list of what is available and what is planned:

     

    ·       ON-LINE EVENT REGISTRATION: Easily view and register for all of our upcoming events.  You can even pay on-line through Google Checkout.  All tournaments are priced at an extra 50 cent to reflect on-line payment expenses.  You can save the 50 cents if you want to send a check through the mail (but think about how much it costs for an envelope, 42 cents in postage, and time.)  Or buy the $75 Tournament Membership and just forget about tournament fees.

     

    ·       ON-LINE MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION: Fill out and submit the membership application on-line.  You can pay on-line or send a check to save the on-line payment expense ($1 for the General Membership and $2 for the Tournament Membership.)  Once we receive your payment, your account will be activated and you will be able to sign in to access the Members-Only pages.

     

    ·       MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY: See contact information, tennis ranking, and preferred times of play for Club members so you can contact them to set up a match.  This directory is visible only to members and you can update access privileges to decide how much of your information you want to share

     

    ·       PHOTO GALLERY: Only members can see photos taken at our events.

     

    ·       NEWS (BLOG): Keep up-to-date on what's happening with the Club.

     

    ·       COMING SOON - FORUMS: We’ll add Forums with great topics such as Feedback, Tennis Tips, How to Host a Social, and Need A Player, all for Members only.  You can subscribe to specific topics so you get email notifications when someone is searching for a 3rd or 4th player for Doubles.

     

    We are going to have a great summer!
